The World’s Worst Idea

    Comes news that House GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy has endorsed comprehensive legalization for persons unlawfully in this country, and predicts the entire House “leadership team” may follow suit. Presumably, the leadership epiphany will be embodied in the “immigration principles” which House Speaker John Boehner will unveil at this year’s appropriately named “Republican retreat.” Thus, this package is expected to include: -a legalization “pathway to amnesty,” | Read More »

    This is What the GOP Establishment Thinks of You

    It is very easy to avert our eyes from the painful reality that is confronting us within the Republican Party.  We would all love to cheer on a GOP victory in the midterm elections, win back the Senate, and live happily ever after.  But as Republicans gear up for the week of amnesty, they have made it clear that the entire purpose of a Republican | Read More »

    Why The Hell The Complaining!? Let’s Actually Kick The RINOs Out!

    All I’ve seen of late is doom about the GOP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Taking immigration with amnesty component, sidling Obamacare in process etc. Okay fine enough, but can we change that for God’s sake? Daniel Horowitz and Erick Erickson to their credit actually try to make a difference by endorsing challengers like Matt Bevin in KY. I fully believe the GOP | Read More »

    Surprise Surprise, Kevin McCarthy Backs Amnesty

    We have a president who has tied the hands of our border agents, granted administrative amnesty, encouraged a new flow of illegal immigration, and is now demanding comprehensive amnesty, citizenship, and benefits for all illegal immigrants.  Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the third-ranking Republican in the House, is responding to the President with overwhelming force.  Watch out, Obama: The third-ranking House Republican, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), | Read More »

    Just How Out of Touch is the Ruling Class?

    Just How Out of Touch is the Ruling Class?

    As House Republicans prepare for their aptly-named “GOP Retreat” at the end of the month, they are planning to make immigration the centerpiece of their legislative strategy.  Both Politico and Roll Call offer a glimpse into their grand scheme.  They will offer a lot of window dressing about enforcement and all the things the GOP base wants to hear.  But ask yourself this question: why | Read More »

    The Great GOP Establishment Amnesty Swindle

    Something peculiar is happening on the immigration front in Washington.  With an eerie resemblance to the drumbeat leading up to Obamacare, Republican leaders are creating a sense of urgency that immigration must be addressed now.  And much like Obamacare is doing to our already-broken healthcare system, their proposals will exacerbate the very factors that have broken our immigration system over the past few decades. However, | Read More »

    The GOP Open Borders Train Revs Up its Engine

    For those of you who thought that our previous warnings about an amnesty push in the near-term were overblown, today’s developments should serve as a wakeup call.  In what was clearly a coordinated effort by the establishment, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor issued a call for passing immigration legislation this year during their weekly conference meeting at the same time Chamber of Commerce President | Read More »

    The Coming Amnesty Offensive and the Need to Clean House

    House GOP leaders have made it crystal clear that it is their intention to pass an amnesty bill based upon every liberal premise of the immigration issue.  The only question is timing. Conservatives must sound the alarm and acknowledge that engaging in the upcoming primaries is the only way to preempt Obamacare 2.0 in the lame duck years of Obama’s tenure. When talking with many | Read More »

    The 2014 Liberal Agenda and How to Stop It

    Slate magazine, an online version of the Washington Post but even more liberal, recently surveyed liberal groups and individuals regarding their “agenda” for 2014. Several items came back and if liberals want to advance these items, we on the Right should be prepared to either thwart or minimize some of these items. First up, they vow to definitively cease the debate over the Keystone pipeline | Read More »

    Putting 2013 in Perspective

    2013 has been a rough year for conservatives. This year began with the passage of the $620 billion tax hike, along with $332 billion in stimulus spending.  It ended with Republicans in both houses helping pass a bill that raises taxes, raises spending, makes it easier to raise taxes in the future, destroys our leverage for two years, screws disabled veterans, and paves the road | Read More »

    Hyper-regulated lawlessness

    Josh Levin at Slate has a long, interesting article – more like a short online book – about the original “welfare queen,” a Chicago woman named Linda Taylor.  She did a lot more than just scam welfare benefits, but that’s what she became most infamous for, back in the 1980s.  Actually, I’d wager most modern readers don’t realize there was a specific person behind the | Read More »

    A Potential ILLEGAL Immigration Plan

    A POTENTIAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION PLAN U.S.A. borders MUST be secured. Illegal aliens will NOT BE DEPORTED just because they are here.  You can stay here (it’s up to you). You MUST pay taxes. You MUST obey local, state, and federal laws You DON’T get welfare, Social Security, or ANY Government benefits. You DON’T get to vote You DON’T get to own property You DON’T get | Read More »

    Immigration is the Tipping Point

    In the past several years, Congress has written some incredibly bad legislation – the Stimulus, PPACA and the Senate’s attempts at immigration reform are part of the highlight (lowlight?) reel of recent horrors from Congress. Now we hear that immigration reform might be in for another grand push from all sides. No less a political luminary than Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame is calling it | Read More »

    The Fix Is In

    In case you missed it, John Boehner has hired Rebecca Tallent. Tallent worked for the left-of-center “Bipartisan Policy Center,” and is a serious amnesty advocate. She helped John McCain and Ted Kennedy during the Bush era on that disastrous plan. Here’s what is going to happen. Boehner will wait until 2014, after qualifying for all the serious challenges to incumbents is over. Then he’ll get | Read More »
